The Oklahoma City Thunder (33-15) and Charlotte Hornets (10-36) square off on February 2 at Paycom Center.
The Charlotte Hornets are in dire straits and have dropped their previous 5 games when they go into this game. Steve Clifford‘s team recently suffered a 117-110 loss to the Bulls, their only victory of the season. In the 16 games the Hornets have competed in thus far in 2024, they have only triumphed three times. They will be hoping that their domination in this fixture endures in spite of all of this. The Hornets’ offensive has been lacking since their finest offensive player, Terry Rozier, joined the Heat. And this ought to be obvious to everyone, as they are playing one of the better defensive teams. Mark Williams and Gordon Hayward are both out of the game, and LaMelo Ball is doubtful. The starting lineup for the Hornets will be Nick Richards at center, Miles Bridges at PF, Cody Martin at SF, Bryce McGowens at SG, and Brandon Miller at PG.
Following a 2-game losing streak, the Thunder returned to winning ways last time around. They will now aim to maintain this momentum and begin what has become a recurring winning streak for them this season. With a 105-100 victory over the Nuggets, Mike Daigneault‘s team earned its 33rd victory of the year and moved within 1 game of first place. The Thunder appeared to be in trouble after scoring just 19 points in the 1st quarter and trailing by 12 points. However, they played outstanding defense to hold the outmatched Nuggets in check for the remainder of the game and escape with a narrow victory. In their last 5 games, OKC has not defeated the Hornets. However, with their opponents having difficulty, they will be very confident in breaking this run. The Thunder, who score 120.4 points per game on average, will be without Isaiah Joe and Jalen Williams for the foreseeable future.
